Have you heard of the Rain Room in New York and one in London? If you get over to this side of the pond, you might want to visit the NY one! It is so cool!!!

Yesterday we relaxed at home, well the kids did anyway. My hubby and I put up a new fence in the back garden all by ourselves!

I do the same thing, Snowflake. I even talk about y'all to my friends. They cannot believe that people really LOVE Christmas the way we do! And that we care about each other and the events in each others' lives.

It's great how things remind us of each other throughout the day!!

Does she want another cat, Holiday? We want another cat since Baby is gone, but we are going to wait until the remodeling is completed on the house. Would she go to the animal shelter to get one? Praying for her. Her loss is real, as I am sure you know.

But she's a tough girl!

I know what you mean, HMG. Hubby is the same way. We don't have any kids at home, but he gets cranky when there is a glitch in all the work he is doing for the remodel and keeping up with his regular "chores." If your husband is anything like mine, he gives 100% all the time, no matter the job! I think he (my Hubby) is somewhat ADHD and his energy is phenomenal!

My oldest had a lot of people here last night which probably had something to do with it. Who knows what they did. My husband will figure it out, he always does. He is just annoyed because he has so much going on with the construction in the house, he doesn't need more work. And my youngest had friends over tonight, we had to keep telling them to keep it down. When its summer vacation they seem to forget that people have to get up early and go to work during the week. They are making us crazy this summer, never a dull moment here.
Anyway, I got my truck back and they did a great job detailing it. I didn't realize how filthy it was until I got the car back. Of course its going to rain tomorrow, lol. But the good news is the temperatures will only be in the 70's. Not bad for August 1st.
I hope everyone had a wonderful day!

Since I retired, I have to check the calendar EVERY DAY because I cannot keep track of time! I don't have the daily reminders, like writing the date on the whiteboard for the students. But I am LOVING every minute of retirement! I should have retired when I was 35, LOL!

Nope, not yet here on my end, but the Fall and Halloween stuff is starting to roll in, big time.

Then as I was walking thru the store as a whole, I caught myself saying out loud as I walked past certain items; "glitter" and "glitter - drink", LOL... This is the truth! Lisa even heard me and she goes, "what are you saying???" I just started laughing to myself as I started to head to the isle where all the Halloween stuff was set up...

In case you cannot hear it in my "voice," the Vitamin B-12 regimen that I started made the biggest difference in my energy level. I have finally caught up on my share of the remodeling "chores" that I was not able to do the past two weeks. I feel human once again.
